My parents and I attended the Chegdu Cooking Class with Chef Lingdang and had a wonderful evening cooking and visiting in her home. She was a wonderful host and readily accommodated our food requests. She is a vegetarian but cooks all foods. Have never seen a vegetarian cook spareribs like she did! First we went to the local market and... More

A group of 20 of us were in Chengdu for an experiential learning journey organised by Leaders' Quest, the social enterprise that I work with. It was the first time most of us were meeting each other and on the our first evening, we organised with Dragon Expeditions, a home cooking evening for the full group. Turns out, they hadn't...

What a treat! We were invited into a private home and after learning about traditional tea ceremonies we visited a fresh food market and then got to work in the kitchen, cooking up an amazing feast! Spending time with the family and their friends, as well as the tour guides led to much laughter, great memories and very satisfied bellies.... More

Cindy organized a cooking lesson for us including shopping on a local market. The market alone already was a worthy experience. There we have seen (and tasted) things one could never get on any European market. Ling Dang also brought us to a local stall were we could buy the best Sichuan pepper in town. So we were able to...

Sichuan food is one of the great attractions of Chengdu but it isn't always accessible for tourists given the difficulties of reading or understanding Mandarin. This tour was fun and informative - we started off in the Market where I had the opportunity to discuss what was on sale and suggest a few extra ingredients - I wanted to try... More

I had just half a day of free time at the end of a business trip, and so signed up for this home cooking class. Liked that the organizers accommodated my request for vegetarian Sichuan dishes. The actual experience far exceeded my expectations, though. It was much more than a cooking class - instead it was more like a host... More

We subscribed to the cooking class without tremendous expectations, but it turned out to be the highlight of our experience of Chengdu. Sichuan's cuisine being rightfully famous, we thought we'd give it a try although I hadn't done this kind of experience before. The organizers were very professional as well as friendly, which sparked some interesting talks while feeling like... More
